The Gaslight Anthem’s sophomore album sold out in under a week. The limited color variants that is anyway. This album made the band explode in popularity and garner mainstream attention and success. The record itself was pressed on three different colors, white, which was a vinyl collective exclusive and limited to 500 copies, blue, which was a Side One Dummy exclusive and limited to 1,000 copies, and black. There are an infinite amount of copies of this record on black, as it’s being kept in print on black for the time being.

An interesting note about this record. The day this record was put up for pre-order, it actually crashed both the Side One Dummy and Vinyl Collective web stores. As a result only a few people actually got to buy it. the next day, Side One Dummy’s store was still down as it could not handle the amount of traffic coming in. A quick and smart decision was made, Vinyl Collective would carry the Side One Dummy exclusive color of the album in the VC store until Side One Dummy’s site could be updated to handle the high traffic volume.
